cause sometimes
there are nights
when you feel like this...

sad for your sister-in-law
and realizing you never knew
how much she looked like her mom
until you saw the collection
of photos they had gathered
in celebration of her life...

worried about impending snow
and trip back to the halifax hospital
{where the snow is supposed to be the worst}
but you know he missed the last appointment, too
{because of a snowstorm}...

lackluster and dull
and void of any sparkle

i took that photo today
thinking that i was going to focus on red
this month...
but then, it ended up saying more to me than that.

maybe i just need to go to bed earlier.
with a book.
and a hot water bottle.

everything is always better in the morning.
